You don’t have to be a cat person to love this ridiculously awesome graphic sweatshirt. This gem was brought to our attention by eBay curator Katherine Power, co-founder of Who What Wear as a part of her “Kenzo Craze" collection. You’d be wise to comb through the wide selection of cool sneakers, printed silk shirts, or the brand’s now-infamous lion sweatshirt. Or you can just cut to the chase and scoop up this sweater directly by clicking here

Curator Corner: Cecilia Dean
Cecilia Dean (co-founder and partner of Visionaire), has been curating her own collections on eBay’s new platform, eBay Today. Let’s just say we’re psyched to be able to follow her taste right now. The Inside Source had a little chat with the fashion and art world heavyweight about how she got started with her first one.
Jauretsi: Tell us the name of your first collection and how it inspired you.
Cecilia Dean: I collect close to home, meaning what is currently on my mind — whether it be work or play. My first collection was inspired by the current issue of Visionaire, called FOREVER. The issue is made entirely of metal to last “forever.” That got me thinking about things that last forever. And so I turned my attention to items that stand the test of time. [MORE] They may be very expensive, but they are worth the investment because you will be able to use them for the rest of your life. My “Black is the New Black" collection is similar in concept in that I am picking classic black items that pick up any wardrobe.
J: Now that eBay will be adding the “follow” button on collections, what types of things would you be interested in following on the site?
CD: I would follow anything that interests me: High heels (please see and share my new collection “The Mile High Club”), urban farming, city transportation, and lots and lots of fashion. I’m still amazed at what you can find on eBay if you spend some time browsing.
J: In terms of your own personal work, what projects are you working on now or what can we expect to see coming soon from you?
CD: I am gearing up for Art Basel Miami Beach, where I will be launching a 3D short film with Marina Abramovic. I am very excited about this new moving-image/ digital direction. We are working on a limited-edition series of T-shirts with Gap. They are so cool and I can’t wait to see people wearing them.
J: What is your favorite eBay find ever?
CD: I can’t believe I found a Birkin bag on eBay!!! Sadly, it’s out of my price range!

eBay’s Bash Last Night

Yesterday eBay introduced new changes to the site, namely the creation of collection. What is “Collections”? It’s a new function that allows us to create collages or groups of eBay items together. It’s possible to “follow” other collections that inspire you too. To announce this function, eBay threw a bash in New York last night with celebrity curators and cool creatives who all made their own collections — think Pharrell choosing Kubrick toys and Solange Knowles finding speakers on eBay. Take a look at more collections by the first 12 curators on eBay Today

Alexander Wang Takes Over Balenciaga
By Jauretsi
This week, Alexander Wang will be taking the reigns of the respected fashion house started by a Basque designer in 1918. Wang will serve as the new creative director, which was freshly announced by WWD. The PPR-owned fashion house selected Wang to replace the highly acclaimed Nicolas Ghesquière (who had his final day at the house last week). Wow. The game is getting interesting.
Wang has extremely enormous shoes to fill, but the young designer (almost 30 years old) has proved to manage his own fashion house with grace and aplomb. The trick will be for Wang to grow Balenciaga while nurturing his own line, too. We’re counting the days until we see Wang’s first Balenciaga collection. No doubt that Ghesquière will be moving on to finer challenges in his own illustrious career. Our eyes are equally focused on both genius minds. Let the games begin.
